were calling it the katrina factor the other day. the bush administration, they're not terribly effective response to hurricane katrina shadowed the rest of the bush presidency. it certainly contributed to the democrats taking the congress in 2006. besides the huge humanitarian cost, which resulted, no president wants to be seen under responding to a storm. that, besides the fact that you want to safeguard the american public, would suggest there would be a big response from the obama administration. there is only so much to you in do. a storm like this in new york, that is something we have not seen for a long time. there is certainly the earth -- possibility for people to say, rightly or wrongly, that the federal government did not respond appropriately. i have not seen any signs that any major figure in the republican party is trying to do that. unlike when some people immediately decided that hurricane irene would be the obama katrina. a couple people, including newt gingrich, suggested a quick response this time was at odds with the respond." pose -- at odds with the respon

is the main cause of damage and the top cause of damage in hurricane katrina, isaac, irene and it has been the top cause of damage since 1980. that is the first time mine -- munich re, the insurance company, started to look at hurricane related events. look at storm surge. i will see where the deep parts of the flooding will be felt along the eastern seaboard. look at this possible surges surpassing six feet. you will see how much it goes inland. because these are sigh loan force winds. we also have a full moon, high tide will be hitting tonight at around 8:00 p.m. eastern time. melissa: wow. >> that is expected to add two to three inches to the storm's surge. so that's the problem here. so when you add texas, add oklahoma and new mexico and arizona into the circumference of it, the total circumference but the problem is insurance policies tend not to cover flooding. you have to buy a separate insurance policy to cover flooding. that is the thing homeowners and businesses need to owe. melissa: i thought it was separate issue flooding from a hurricane or just looding? >> that is important
the florida coast. we got a lot of their grain from katrina. but all of the storms before, we were affected by many of those. we are 100 miles and the coast. you know what i am saying it? i think it is global warming. it could be other things and stuff. but the way the pollution and stuff is affecting the world -- there you can see different changes and stuff. that is what i want to say. host: this also from the wall street journal about transportation. riders took a 5 billion trips and public systems and washington, d.c., philadelphia, boston, jersey and the greater new york city area. scena. go ahead. caller: i am living in new york. and this is an economy issue. i am looking across the street and new jersey is deadlocked. i look downtown and it is blacked out. all of these people cannot go to work today. their businesses are closed. there are people scrambling. my friends are calling and asking where can i get food? this is a big issue. $20 billion is easily going to be the cost of this. it is all about the economy. we can get more than enough energy. and you wouldn't be facing climate c
health there. you and i have talked a lot about hospitals in the wake of katrina. why do people put the power in the basement? it seems to me the first thing that's going to go in a flood or any kind of, not even a major a storm, but a minor storm, is your basement's going to flood. >> this has been a bit of a technological whack-a-mole here, because we realized after katrina, and even after the blackout of 2003, we had to do something about backup generators in hospital. and so we moved the generators upstairs, but left the fuel pumps down in the basement. so we fixed the initial problem and have a secondary that no one seems to have thought about. >> okay, is that just complete stupidity, or is that, listen, it's financially expensive and people make the gamble, we're not going to invest the money and hope for the best. >> i think in this case, it was not paying attention to all of the details. i think people were well meaning. i don't think there was any sort of gross negligence here, except that somebody forgot an essential detail, in a situation that requires extraordinarily ex
for president bush was of him hugging someone after a natural disaster. you know, the images of katrina, biggest single thing beyond the war in iraq that undermined confidence in president bush's leadership. you cannot get those images out of your head as you watch this stuff. >> except, you know what, katty kay? there is a certain appeal that i think is coming as a relief to people who are tired, who are tired of the vitriol, of the stupidity. and a politician who can work with the other side, isn't that something that in this new age of politics that's appealing? >> it's huge. and i think it's probably almost the overriding priority of whoever gets elected next tuesday is to be able to make this country governable again. and to be able to do that by bringing about a certain amount of cooperation on the things america needs to do between republicans and democrats. we saw it yesterday between chris christie and brearack oba. and it's going to be very interesting to watch today as the campaign trail resumes, whether there's a different tone. i wouldn't be surprised -- we've heard the president us

, was about the vote on hurricane katrina. there will be all kinds of wasted funds. it is a principled vote and it will be easy to vote on. king was right -- this is the sioux city's response. the balance of that is false. i have had better votes since then. voting against obamacare, voting against cap and trade, dodd-frank, those were better votes, but the rest of those allegations are false. >> he is one of 11 congressmen who took a vote against hurricane katrina relief. i think that everything i said in that ad is true. we have researched all of it. these are congressman king's own words. >> and he is using one to define mrs. vilsack. >> what does it mean if mrs. vilsack calls for tax increases? she is for increasing taxes on job creators and in this stagnant economy, christie vilsack will effect -- hurt job creation. on doesn't have a clue jobs. >> mr. king, you've seen the ad. >> that's the first time i've seen that, but am happy to respond. mrs. vilsack wants the tax increase to kick in on millionares, and many of them are job creators and small businesspeople. >> mrs. vilsack, you've
to hurricane katrina. when that happened late august of 2005, both of these stocks were on the move up. both of them actually traded right near their all time high and in the last few years they tumbled. lowe's went to, and home depot ultimately with 21 with the cash of the market. and people who bought katrina, and long-term investment got waxed pretty good. fast forward, lowe's last time missed the street by a nickel and home depot beat by 4 cents and concensus estimates, and went up home depot, there's a downgrade recently on home depoe and two upgreats on lowe's. to me, i can lie home depot, i think they have better operators and storms and when the storm path went and i just happen to think it's a better operation, better historical execution, so i would be willing to pay extra for it, for both of the stocks. cheryl: and-- >> $30 for lowe's, 58 for home depot and break out 63 for home depot i think it takes off or break out at 33 for lowe's, that could be a takeoff point. cheryl: another positive, unfortunately, coming out of this storm you're going to have new construction and you're g
million without power in the south five days after hurricane katrina. some relief for those in manhattan, new york city mayor michael bloomberg promising that most of the burroughs power will be returned by midnight tonight. but any progress on that front has been severely undercut by long lines again -- attestations the new york governor saying he signed an executive order waiving a requirement that fuel tankers register and pay taxes before unloading insisting his order we will help get gasoline to consumers faster. it is estimated that two-thirds of gasoline stations in new jersey and new york are not in business right now. however, it is little comfort for people stuck for long hours in long lines to with no guarantee that they will get gas at the end of that line. but some people, at least some are beginning to dry. this is a very serious and frustrating matter for literally millions of people in this region. turning now to benghazi, almost two months after the terrorist attack that killed four americans, the cia has released a new timeline, a timeline of its actions suggesting it p
not as powerful as hurricane katrina, the storm stretches a record 520 miles from its eye. earlier this morning, the national hurricane center said the hurricane's wind speed increased 85 miles per hour with additional strengthening possible. describing it as a rare hybrid superstorm, forecasters say sandy was created by an arctic jet stream wrapping itself around a tropical storm. the storm could cause up to 12 inches of rain and in some areas, as well as up to 3 feet of snowfall in the appalachian mountains. flooding has also expected to be a major problem. the national weather service has warned of record level flooding and life-threatening storm surges in coastal areas. the nuclear regulatory commission has announced it is taking special precautions for the storm. there are at least 16 nuclear reactors located within the path of the storm. six oil refineries are also in the storm's path. while the news media have been covering hurricane sandy around the clock, little attention has been paid to the possible connection between the storm and climate change. scientists have long warned how glob
in lives and economic damage might be less than katrina. i know our insurance analyst has talked about the size of the liability being half, which is good news. and i think there's going to be some affect on auto sales and consumer retail spending. but, again, if those stocks take a dip, that's going to be a pretty big opportunity. because we know when you have to fix a broken window you end up with more spending. overall, this could be a boost to the economy. i think it's going to be viewed as an opportunity. i think we're seeing in some of the premarket activity. >> i never know really whether to believe that or not. i see with insurance companies and i've seen the case made, the broken window case that you eventually have to fix it. net net, replacing things that may have been -- didn't need replacing and using capital to do that, i can't believe that, you know, spending $20 billion on what you didn't have to do before can be net net be good long-term. is that really true? is that the case that economists make? >> well, i think it depends on how much credit is involved. in other wor
went through katrina in mississippi says that's absolutely what governor christy ought to say, he is doing what he has to do and get off his back. and you have the underground voices of the romney campaign who were taking a different tack and kind of sniping at christie at different angles, in a fit of pique basically. >> you can't really blame them. this is game theory. you choose a, i choose b. if my guy looks like he is helping you, even if he is not truly helping you, and appearance has a tendency to be a reality, i don't blame the romney folks for being a little piqued or po'ed. >> you may not blame them, but for showing it. some of the conservatives who backed governor romney showing that they were quite irritated with this and rather take the high road, knowing that all eyes are on this storm and the response. so marc, looking at these numbers, 73% of the folks in ohio, who already approved the bailout and now approve the president's response to sandy, what do we make of that when you couple it with the chris christie hug heard around the world it seems. we can't stop talki
with andrew which damaged his political career, it was damaged. of course george w. bush in 2005 with katrina. many people in the bush white house cite that was the low point of his presidency. a lot of dangers also, a lot of political opportunities. >> let's get practical. early voting is happening in these states. maryland cancelled early voting for the day. how much of an impact is that especially for the obama campaign is very much -- >> they are dependent on it, talking about it, counting on it. it does have an impact. it moves romney into an awkward situation. anything he does looks blatantly political or needy he's not in the equation when the country is under siege from a massive storm. >> the president of the united states went to the fema command center which by the way was it cynical or maybe the people running the campaign said we need to get him there. the president was doing what presidents do. what does mitt romney do? >> real quickly this close to the election does it matter if they got to cancel these rallies and what about their ad? if you're wall to wall coverage in these m

that came into the economy from federal payments and from insurance. katrina, $100 billion. again, it took a long time to rebuild. what i would say is the initial impact very, very bad, but when the federal government gets involved, waves its wand, and when insurers pay, you tend to have a very quick rebound that can actually help, if it's huge enough, the gross domestic product of the united states. >> i want to focus on that. not to be insensitive to what people are dealing with, but there are certain sectors of the economy that will benefit, i would assume, the construction industry to start with, one. >> yes. in hurricane andrew in 1992 the construction industry boomed. the lumber industry boomed. glass. a lot of companies simply had to send everything down to florida and that raised the price across the board throughout the united states. highly unusual. that was pretty much the only time that i have seen the gross domestic product really jump off of a hurricane. this could be like that. that's how big this one might end up being. >> and very quickly, i'm sure you had heard rumors, re

for showing up in such large numbers to help out. i remember in my state of massachusetts when katrina hit, some of the people were evacuated from new orleans were brought to massachusetts. we gathered them at a military base on cape cod. they thought they were going to houston, by the way. the plane said that they were going to boston and they were not very happy. we told our citizens that we have people coming here that have been affected by the hurricane if you would like to help by providing supplies and goods that they might need. you know what? there were cars lined up, people dropping off all sorts of goods, some things that were temporary like food. others that were permanent like tv sets, clothes, and it was amazing to see the turn out. it is part of the american way. we have people having hard times because of this terrible hurricane. your generosity will make a difference. i want to thank you. we have work to do. to make this an enjoyable work setting, we have asked a great entertainer, randy owen of alabama to be here.
